Why Should You Attend:

Knowing what to do in increasingly complicated employee situations can be difficult for even seasoned California managers, especially if a manager has never had training. For a new manager these problems are intensified. Nevertheless, by the time an employee problem reaches HR, a level of liability has often been created; even more so true in CA. How an employer handles such problems, can either limit or increase liability.

Further exacerbating the problem is that managers often inherit a dysfunctional department and/or are promoted to supervise those with whom they once were coworkers. In an increasingly complicated world of employee compliance in which HR struggles just to keep abreast of new developments, not teaching managers the basics can be costly. In CA, it can be damagingly costly.

This course will offer attendees updates on California employment laws including leaves for employees. It will also highlight common problem areas relating to Wage and Hour in the state, the 12 essential elements of documentation, and accommodations in CA among other key topics.

  • Changes to CA employment law and updates for 2015.
  • Leaves in CA - there are a lot of them.
  • Accommodations in CA. Not just a disability but a condition.

Topic Background:

California boasts of some of the most complicated HR compliance laws. When it comes to practicing HR, California is akin to running a business in another country. The standards of what is expected from employers are greater, and the payouts to wronged employees are higher.

You can count on the fact that if there is a federal law, there will be a related CA state law with higher expectations for employers and lower thresholds for violation. Making employment mistakes in CA can be particularly easy as well as unforgiving. For example, the payouts for violation of wage and hour laws are almost eightfold in CA compared to the rest of the US average.

  • From a business perspective, training managers in the basics of California HR compliance, basics of employment law, how to write documentation, and how to use the tools of employee development is the simplest thing an employer can do to stave off unwarranted employment claims. This holds true tenfold in CA.
  • From a manager’s perspective, managing from day one is the most important thing a manager can do for productivity purposes, compliance reasons, and for employee development and engagement.
  • From an HR perspective, training managers in the basics of CA HR compliance can help defend against a whole host of employment claims, including those that often take root from miscommunication, misinformation, and mismanagement.

Since it’s the managers who interact with employees on a day-to-day basis, every day is an opportunity for problems to arise that a manger was never trained in how to address. In CA, even routine situations such as denying a seemingly simple request for a few days off can blow up into claims of a denied request for protected leave.
